    I will be taking delivery of the Sony SCD-C555ES SACD player this week. I will be connecting it to a Yamaha 995 receiver. For regular CD (redbook?) playback, should I even bother with a digital coaxial connection to the receiver or should I just stick with the 2 channel analog outputs?

    Thanks.

    Adam,
    I'm not familiar with the 995 myself, so can't give a suggestion based on experience there.
    But if you've got the necessary cords around (even hooked to other components) maybe try both connections and just see for yourself--then, if necessary, pick up another digital cable.
    BTW, I got a 555ES myself a couple weeks ago. I like it. [​IMG]
